After the topic about "which distro to use for a server", I wanted to install CentOS 4 on my Proliant server. Installation worked fine and without problems. After the installation, it booted without any problem.
I noticed that by default it boots into runlevel 3. Starting X was no problem. After looking around, I quit X and used VIM to set the runlevel in /etc/inittab to 5 so that next boot, it would boot graphically.
But when I reboot the system, during the boot, the system just freezes (the "I'm working" animation freezes too).., I wanted to check tty1, but [ctrl][alt][F1] didn't work, the whole system was as dead as a doornail...
During the graphical boot, the last "option" it displays is "Red Hat network support" (or something like that, I'm using the Ducth language).
Rebooting the system and with Grub going to runlevel 3 works. Then, I can even start X... :?
